WinPatrol is an easily configurable application which can protect users from different threats, such as worms or trojans that might infect the computer. The utility is able to get rid of them fast, but it is also able to accomplish other tasks in order to optimize the computer’s running parameters and make it a powerful tool, like after a fresh OS install.
WinPatrol allows users to quickly get rid of different tools that are running along the system when it is booted up. These are slowing down the boot process and it might even take minutes until the computer is relieved from a 100% CPU load and able to work normally. Users can choose from a list the tools they want disabled for the start up and they can also add their own if they have to.
WinPatrol is able to detected all sorts of malware that might run along with the operating system and it will quickly inform the user about the findings. Then, these malicious files will be removed by the utility. The hosts file is something that is also monitored by the tool so that no changes are done without the consent of the administrator. Tasks that replicate each other can be killed once and for all.
